Greg Landes - Synchronicity/Original Music

“This hybrid drum kit set up is from another Synchronicity performance. This time for a piece written by my brother Garah Landes for Soprano, Piano and Percussion called The Tunnel performed at Symphony Space in New York City on a Pit Stop Players concert.

The piece was written for my wife Cynthia Wuco Landes to sing. The text is from a poem by Robert Creeley. The piece has also been augmented with Double Bass and Clarinet on certain performances.

The set includes elements from my DW Mini Pro Drumset including the Bass Drum and Floor Tom. Silver Darbuka, Bongos, Mark Tree, Tambourine, 22" Wuhan Flat Gong, 10" Paiste Splash Cymbal and Triangle and Finger Cymbal mounted on the Miller Machines. As in previous posts, this is one of my favorite go-to setups. The colors and timbres in this setup work perfectly for the piece and complement the text and color of the vocals without being too intrusive.”

Greg endorses both Paiste Cymbals and Innovative Percussion.
